Famous mice in history

Mickey’s of Hollywood, which runs along Disney’s Hollywood Studios Hollywood Blvd. and includes Disney & Co. Fashion Extras and Pluto’s Palace, features one of the most unique views of Mickey available anywhere on property. Starting at the front of the store, near the park entrance, a guest can move through the store and the progression of Mickey’s animation.Throughout the store figures of Mickey are centrally placed to showcase the career and modifications of the character. The first section of the store features Mickey Mouse in black and white from Steamboat Willie (1928), his first on screen appearance. In the middle of the shop is Mickey from The Band Concert (1935), which also happens to be the first time Mickey Mouse appears in color. In the last section of the shop is Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Fantasia (1940), the first time Mickey is given his more modern appearance. The fact that this is the conclusion of the store and the Mickey timeline is in keeping with the golden age of Hollywood (the 1930s to the 1950s) that permeates throughout the park.In addition to the figures of Mickey, the various sections also include borders near the ceiling that emphasize the stories of the various cartoons.
